Toronto Raptors Betting

The Toronto Raptors finally picked up their first win of the season after losing their first four games with a 17-point bludgeoning of the New York Knicks, 100-83. Fred VanVleet was the team’s best scorer at that time as he did 25 points and seven assists. Kyle Lowry followed him with 20 points and seven assists while Norman Powell filled in for the injured Pascal Siakam with 17 points. Chirs Boucher continues to be the team’s bench dynamo as he flirted with a double-double of nine points and nine rebounds. The team needs more from other players like OG Anunoby to step up and give the team quality production.

It has been an up-and-down start for the New Orleans Pelicans and they rolled on the good side of the bed picking up a win over the Oklahoma City Thunder during their last game, 113-80. Brandon Ingram lives up to the expectations of the team giving them 20 points, seven rebounds, and two triples while Eric Bledsoe contributed 17 points. Lonzo Ball was all-around giving the team 16 points, nine assists, and eight rebounds but it was an off night for Zion Williamson giving the team 12 points and had only 17 minutes. Steven Adams filled in for the lack of interior presence with 14 points and 10 rebounds.
